Join Our PTA


PTA is the oldest and largest child advocacy association in America. Today's PTA is comprised of 5 million parents, teachers, grandparents, caregivers, foster parents and other caring adults who share a commitment to improving the education, health, and safety of all children. We speak with one voice for every child.

Today, the issues affecting our children extend beyond their individual schools. The PTA's nationwide network provides parents with the forum and tools to collectively influence the decisions that affect children not only at their schools, but also throughout their districts, within their states, and across the nation. This mission is unique to the PTA. Learn more here.

Vision Statement

It is the vision of John Tyler Elementary School to fulfill our mandate as a public school, helping students attain the highest possible standards as established by our school board and our state.

In recognizing the need for a strong academic base, teachers (and staff) will stress skills in reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies, and technology. The arts and physical education will be recognized for their importance in the development of the whole individual.


We Believe

  • We believe our school should provide a quality education for all students.
  • We believe in the important contribution parents, volunteers, and community partners can make, and we actively seek their participation in providing a quality program.
  • We believe our school should be a place where each student leaves with a sense of accomplishment and a desire to return the next day.
